Security Policy Administration

  • Security Policy Best Practices (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/sa4se9bc(v=vs.90).aspx) The .NET Framework provides a code access security model that allows administrators to modify security policy to meet their individual needs. While code access security generally increases the reliability and security of applications, improperly administering code access security policy can potentially create security weaknesses. This section explains basic administration concepts and describes some of the best practices to use when administering code access security policy.

 

Security Policy Managment

  • Security Policy Management (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c1k0eed6(v=vs.90).aspx) Security policy is the configurable set of rules that the common language runtime follows when determining the permissions to grant to code. The code is identified by its assembly file, which is either an executable (.exe) or a library (.dll). The runtime examines identifiable characteristics of the assembly, such as the Web site or zone where the code originates, to determine the access that the code can have to resources.
